  • How to Remove Trash Can Icon From Left Dock Panel in Ubuntu 21.10 | UbuntuHandbook

    This simple tutorial shows how to remove the trash icon from the dock in Ubuntu 21.10 Impish Indri.

    Different to the previous releases, Ubuntu 21.10 puts the trash icon on left dock instead of the desktop. However, I don’t use the trash icon in either location. Instead, I removes files using right-click menu options, and go to trash via file manager left sidebar.

    If you also find it useless, then here’s how to remove it either via a single command or by a graphical configuration tool.

  • How to create a user and add it to the sudoers group in Rocky Linux

    In Linux administration, best practice recommends running commands as a regular user with sudo privileges. This user is simply known as a sudo user, and the user bears root privileges to perform elevated tasks in the system such as installing, updating, upgrading, and removing packages to mention a few. To execute privileged commands as a sudo user, the word ‘sudo’ precedes the actual command. Sudo is short for Super User do and when invoked, it allows underprivileged users to perform elevated tasks using root privileges.

    By default, the regular user created upon installation is simply an underprivileged user. Thankfully, you can add the user to the sudoers group to impart root privileges. This will allow the user to perform elevated tasks in the system just as a root user would. In this tutorial, we demonstrate how to create a user and add them to the sudoers group on Rocky Linux.

  • How to install Apache, MariaDB and PHP (LAMP) on Debian 11 – VITUX

    The LAMP stack is a collection of open-source software products that are frequently used in conjunction. The acronym LAMP is used to describe a computer system that has the following components: Linux, Apache HTTP Server (or just server), MySQL and PHP/Perl/Python.

    A user can install all of these components separately on a single computer or, more commonly, on separate computers connected by a network; however, some components are dependent upon other components – for instance, it is not possible to install Apache without first installing Linux – hence the standard installation practice is to install all components on a single computer system.

    The LAMP stack is the combination of open-source software to form a server environment most commonly used in web development.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database.

The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
